Today I want to talk about the mistakes that surely every digital entrepreneur has made when starting a new project. Some apply to all kinds of entrepreneurship, however, today we are going to focus on digital entrepreneurs, their experiences and their advice to avoid them and be able to get rid of unfortunate experiences.
Entrepreneurship is a lonely path with a lot of work and little time off, so asking for help from those closest to you can be a great idea. But, the rules of the game must be well set, since feelings are harder to control with them and in moments where important decisions must be made, or work must be held accountable, it is important to know how to communicate in an optimal working way.
The most common consequences of not doing so are:
What does financial freedom mean? Having enough savings, investments, cash on hand to be able to do the things we want to do, whether in our businesses or in our personal lives.
Financial freedom is quality of life for our families and ourselves. Is to have healthy finances (debt free) in our businesses. It means that the money is working for us, not us for it.
Imagine everything you could do in your business if instead of looking for clients to pay the bills, whether personal or from your business, you could do what you like, give the best customer service in anything you do because you know that the sale is going to happen anyway, since you don't have the need to urgently pay certain bills, which often forces to almost give away your products or services to achieve quick income so that you can get out of the financial problem.
Let's not go any further, let's analyze what happened and continues to happen unfortunately, with many businesses that have had to close because they...
Currently there are hundreds of platforms where we can communicate in different ways with our friends, family, clients and colleagues, but when we talk about professional communication tools, there are 2 applications that lead the market by far, we are talking about WhatsApp Business and Telegram. These rival apps started out as simple free instant messaging sites and changed the way of communication globally.
The impact that these companies has had worldwide is impressive, in 2009 the large companies that based their communication mainly on email, calls to the landline and mobile, have transferred more than 70% of it to these applications, creating Closer relationships with your collaborators, customers and suppliers, all at your fingertips and significantly reducing response time.
We are in an age where information is the most valuable thing we have and sharing information, images and videos with those who are part of our organization has become a basic necessity for...
March 2020 looks so close and at the same time so far depends on the perspective from which we see it.
If we asked a mom with young children who used to work from home and her husband used to go to the office every day, imagine what she feels, a total total change in her life!!
Her routine was getting up, getting her little ones ready, taking them to school, going home and getting to work, organizing her activities while her husband left for work early. In the afternoon she used to go to pick up her children and perhaps returned to prepare dinner for everyone, play with the little ones, wait for Dad to have dinner together and put the kids to sleep.
And from one day to the next, everything changed! The children cannot go to school, the husband has to work from home, she continues to have the same job, with high demands, projects to finish, but now she has to juggle to be able to attend the young children who don't entertain themselves, her husband cannot entertain them because...
As we have discussed before, technology is an entrepreneur's best friend, and yet the acquisition of knowledge, the collection of information, and learning about new tools can be a more complex task than it seems especially when we seek truthfulness and the quality of the information we receive.
And it would seem that despite all these tools that help us save time and be efficient, we have less and less time to invest it in our knowledge, for this podcasts were created, small nuclei of information created by experts and inexperienced people sharing their experiences, experiences and failures to give you a point of view so that you can learn in an easy and fun way, you can find them on places like YouTube, Spotify, TEDx, SoundCloud or their own websites and streaming platforms:
James wedmore in more than 400 episodes is going to take you through a journey of fun and dynamic podcasts revolving around different topics related to...
We would have never imagined that we would have to get on a really long waiting line to get into the grocery store and that when we could finally enter we would find out that there are no more essential things like meat, eggs, vegetables, toilet paper, etc. because a lot of people panicked and made scary purchases. We did not imagine that overnight we would be locked up at home, that all the places we used to go would be closed.
No dining in our favorite restaurant, we can't go to the movies, to the theater, to an open-air concert, schools are closed, kids at home, our spring and summer vacations cancelled, and the news tell us that now that we can't go anywhere If we do not wear a mask and we must also be a meter and a half away from people, we cannot see our family, our parents, our uncles, our close friends. And what about the economy, markets to the ground, closed companies, people without jobs, empty streets, etc. etc.
Ufff just thinking about everything we lost from one moment...
Every day thousands of new products and services appear and we feel that we can't compete, but as hard as it is to believe, there is a market for absolutely everyone. If you are thinking of starting a new business or launching a new product, you only need to do it intelligently and create a plan to ensure your success and create a lasting business.
The first thing that we have to take into account when creating an online business is clarity. Clarity in our strengths and weaknesses, in the industry in which we want to focus, in the type of company or business we want to create and how we are going to make our business profitable.
Something very important and that you must take into account is that we should never create a business for the simple fact of generating money ... What?
Yes, thinking only about money is a recipe for disaster.
The reason to create that business should be to solve a problem for others, to add value to your community and your customers and by default the money...
Several years ago I worked for a business association in Mexico, and something that I doubtless learned was that all the benefits you get depend completely on you and on your participation in it, remember that it is useless if you buy a book but never read it, or if you sign up for a class and do not put into practice what you learn, the more you get involved in the activities that the association organizes, the more you will gain from it.
Often we stop doing something that interests us or that we like because of the cost it could entail, however, we don’t always see that the benefits could be greater. Today I’d like to invite you to analyze all the advantages you could obtain if you actively participated in these business associations, and you will see that what you get out of it will be at least 3 times the cost you put in.
I’ve had the opportunity to belong to several associations in Mexico as well as in the United States and I would like to...
